Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Cleavage

    The tendency of a mineral to break along planes of weak bonding.

  • Concordant

    A term used to describe intrusive igneous masses that form parallel to the bedding of the surrounding rock.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Eccentricity

    The variation of an ellipse from a circle.

  • Halocline

    A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.

  • Hygrometer

    An instrument designed to measure relative humidity.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Intertidal zone

    The area where land and sea meet and overlap; the zone between high and low tides.

  • Ionosphere

    A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Nonrenewable resource

    Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.

  • Normal polarity

    A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.

  • Oceanic ridge system

  • Open system

    One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.

  • Radiocarbon (carbon-14)

    The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).

  • Terminal moraine
